Soccer (Ladies)



Welcome to NUI Galway Ladies Soccer Club!

Here at NUI Galway, women's soccer is fast becoming one of the university's most popular sports, and with the participation of a Galway Women's team in the FAI Women's National League, there is an increasing interest in the sport in the West of Ireland. The recent partnership of NUI Galway with Galway WFC has seen a positive reaction to the sport in Galway.

The club competes in the WSCAI Premier Division (see http://www.thirdlevelfootball.ie/wscai/ for more information) with games throughout each semester.

New players are always welcome; we love to see new faces at training along with the usual old ones. We cater for home and exchange students at every level.

If you are interested in playing with us in the 2019/2020 season, be sure to check us out and contact us at www.facebook.com/nuigalwaygirls

or send us an email at ladiessoccer@clubs.nuigalway.ie

Look forward to hearing from you!

History

The NUIG Ladies Soccer Club have a great tradition of camaraderie which can only be equaled by the desire to be the best team they can. The main aims of the Ladies Soccer club are: Playing soccer, being a social outlet for people to make friends and have fun, while competing at the highest level against other teams to make our mark in the women's game nationwide.

We have had several players capped at international level for the Ireland WNT and at the World University Students' Games. Most recently, we had 4 players represented at the World University Games in 2019 where the team finished 4th.

The university and the sports unit have been incredibly supportive to the development of the club and our committee members work hard every year to enable us to compete in all tournaments and leagues at a high standard.
